Passing on the tradition of the Love of Nature

“The more clearly we can focus our attention on the wonders and realities of the universe about us, the less taste we shall have for destruction.” ― Rachel Carson

Thank you for your support in helping us celebrate the 10th holiday season of our local Wild Birds Unlimited nature shop! We will continue to do our best to fill your nature niche needs, feature items made in America and to focus on product quality. This year we have many nature focused gifts including bird seed houses, balls, bells, wreaths, and angels. You can find just the right thing to share with someone special on your list.

J.B., Eli and Dolly (cats) also want to say thank you for all the treats, blankets, cat grass, catnip, and cat beds given to them throughout the year. At over 20 years old, J.B. is the oldest working store cat and I'm sure it is because of all the love he has received over the years from his customers.
Feeding the birds is a time honored tradition practiced by many kind people. After harvests, bread crumbs, seeds or a sheaves of grain were set out for the birds. The very act of giving to the birds signified a reminder that no matter how lean the times, when people shared, good fortune would follow. Passing on the love of nature, we hope to enrich your family's traditions and create a sense of wonder of the natural world in the next generation. We wish you a wonderful holiday season!
